    These are strange days in the USA… The Bears are in first place in the NFC North and a pipsqueak posing as Thomas Magnum is trespassing on the grounds of the Robin Masters Estate in Hawaii. And, it’s not Mac… If that wasn’t bad enough, a 100 lb. chick in yoga pants is masquerading as Higgins. Welcome to the dystopian world of the new, 2018 version of Magnum, P.I. The new Magnum, P.I. is a testament to not only how bad Hollywood is now, but how completely upside down society is. In 2018 America, aka America 180; right is left,...

    [Snip] It wasn’t as solid of a night for CBS, though. The premiere of the final season of “The Big Bang Theory” scored only a 2.4 in the demo, down around 40% from its premiere last year and from the 2.7 average of its previous season. “Young Sheldon” (1.7) suffered an even greater year-to-year drop, falling 2.1 points from its series premiere and also down from its first season average (2.2). The series premiere of “Magnum P.I.” fell 0.5 from its “Young Sheldon” lead-in, and scored a low 1.2 in the 9 p.m. hour, while “Bull” returned to a 0.9...

    CBS is in talks for the rights to produce a miniseries based on "A Higher Loyalty," former FBI Director James Comey's memoir of his time in the FBI, including his service under President Trump. CNBC reported Tuesday that the network is close to a deal for the series's rights after reportedly winning an auction for the story earlier this month. CBS Television Studios declined to comment to CNBC, but a source close to the negotiations described the auction process as "a highly competitive situation," according to the report. The former FBI director's memoir was released in April amid fanfare in...

    CBS Television Studios is near a deal for a miniseries based on former FBI Director James Comey's memoir "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership," according to Deadline Hollywood. The online news site said CBS won an auction and is in final talks for rights to the New York Times bestselling book. It said Comey was involved in pitch meetings in Los Angeles with potential buyers of the project. CNBC reached out to Macmillan, the memoir's publisher, for comment. CBS Television Studios declined comment for this story. Comey served as director of the FBI from 2013 until May 2017, when...

    When press and camera crews from a number of outlets gathered outside her door — as a sexual assault allegation left the Supreme Court nomination of her husband, Brett Kavanaugh, hanging in the balance — Ashley Estes Kavanaugh delivered cupcakes. According to at least one reporter, CBS’ Kathryn Watson, Kavanaugh offered up cupcakes from Sprinkles, a cupcake bakery in Georgetown. Watson’s tweet spurred several reactions. First, people asked, “why are you at his house?” and criticized the media for camping out at his house.
  • The Talk: Julie Chen's Leave of Absence Extended — Is She Ever Coming Back?

    Is Julie Chen on the verge of being evicted from her own daytime talk show? The Talk co-host was once again M.I.A. during Monday’s broadcast, extending her leave of absence in the wake of Les Moonves’ firing into Week 2. Chen’s continued absence was not addressed by her fellow Talk panelists and guest host Carnie Wilson, who instead discussed Carrie Underwood’s tearful CBS Sunday Morning interview and Mike Seidel’s dramatic hurricane coverage for The Weather Channel at the top of the Monday’s show.

    After taking a hiatus from her post on The Talk Julie Chen returned to CBS to host Big Brother, but chose not to address the latest allegations of sexual misconduct against husband Leslie Moonves for most of the show. That was all until the very end of the episode where she seemed to show support for her husband, by signing off on the show with: "I'm Julie Chen Moonves. Goodnight." It was off script from her usual sign off and the first time she has used the last name Moonves on the show. The morning after her husband Leslie Moonves...

    As an inherently political comedy, CBS’ Murphy Brown revival was fully expected to take on the Donald Trump presidency, and now we know it will include his controversial immigration policies. Relative newcomer Adan Rocha has been cast as a new series regular on the new Murphy Brown, from original creator Diane English and Warner Bros. TV. First appearing in the show’s second episode, he will play Miguel, a Mexican Dreamer who came to the United States at the age of one.

    Twenty years after recommending to Congress that then-President Clinton be impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice, Kenneth Starr has written a book about it. Surely, with the passage of time and many other books exploring the Lewinsky affair and the other Clinton scandals, Starr can be treated with dignity and respect. Back then, he faced ABC's Diane Sawyer calling his Starr report "demented pornography, pornography for Puritans." Twenty years later, nothing has changed. In a Sept. 10 interview on "CBS This Morning," anchor Norah O'Donnell brought up one of his lawyers: "One of the things we've learned the Supreme...

    The exec had been at CBS News for 36 years and has been a leading figure at the news division for decades. The tenure of Jeff Fager as the executive producer of 60 Minutes is over. "Jeff Fager is leaving the company effective immediately," read a statement from CBS News president David Rhodes on Wednesday. "Bill Owens will manage the 60 Minutes team as Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews and I begin the search for a new executive producer of the program. 60 Minutes is the most significant news broadcast on television." Rhodes added: "We are fortunate to have incredibly talented journalists in...

    "60 Minutes" executive producer Jeff Fager is leaving CBS News "effective immediately" amid allegations of inappropriate behavior, the company announced on Wednesday. "Bill Owens will manage the 60 Minutes team as Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews and I begin the search for a new executive producer of the program," CBS News president David Rhodes said in a statement. A New Yorker article in August implicated Fager, along with former CBS CEO Les Moonves, in a series of allegations of sexual misconduct at the company. Moonves stepped down from his position earlier this week.

    Julie Chen did not appear on Monday’s Season 9 premiere of “The Talk” on CBS the day after her husband, Leslie Moonves, was ousted as CEO-chairman of CBS Corp. “I am taking a few days off from ‘The Talk’ to be with my family. I will be back soon and will see you Thursday night on ‘Big Brother’,” Chen said in a statement. Host Sharon Osbourne kicked off the show saying, “It’s a very bittersweet day for a Season 9. We’re about to talk about something that affects everyone’s lives at CBS. I’ve never been nervous in my life, and...

    Bowing to pressure brought on by a sexual harassment scandal, CBS Corp. Chairman and Chief Executive Leslie Moonves is expected to resign late Sunday, according to two people familiar with the matter who were not authorized to comment publicly. His resignation would mark a stunning fall from grace for one of Hollywood’s most revered entertainment executives. Negotiations over the terms of his departure accelerated following a new report Sunday in the New Yorker magazine, which detailed six women’s allegations of sexual misconduct involving Moonves in the 1980s and 1990s. Now a total of 12 women have alleged that Moonves made...

    Hillary Clinton, secret agent! When the former secretary of state approached Madam Secretary executive producer Lori McCreary about guest-starring on the CBS drama, her first request was to assume a provocative new identity as a spy. But McCreary had a better idea. “I said, would you ever play yourself?” McCreary recalls of the conversation she had with Clinton at a birthday party last August for former President Bill Clinton. “And she said, ‘I’d consider it.’ But it was a party, so you think maybe people are just making small talk. So when we confirmed that she really wanted to do...

    During a panel discussion on Thursday’s Special Report, Fox News anchor Bret Baier was amazed that the same network news organizations that hyped anonymous claims Donald Trump knew in advance about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting between campaign aides and a Russian lawyer refused to correct the record when it was revealed on Wednesday that such claims were completely false.   “There was a story that [former Trump attorney Michael] Cohen was going to say to Mueller and his investigators that President Trump, candidate Trump, knew about the...Trump Tower meeting beforehand...” Baier explained. He added: “And everybody went crazy with...

    We’ve been hearing it for months: the blue wave is coming. The Democrats are going to retake the House. The Democratic ballot advantage is significant. Well, if that does occur, a blue wave, congressional Democrats will move to impeach President Trump on bogus charges. There is still zero evidence to suggest the president’s campaign colluded with the Russians. Oh, what about campaign finance? The Obama campaign was fined for violations. Did he ever face impeachment charges? It’ll be a circus, a pervasive parade of nonsense, hyperbole, and liberal whining the likes of which we’ve never seen. And we’ve seen a...

    They say the Almighty works in mysterious ways and, in this case, it's through Facebook. We've all had those friend requests that we leave in limbo for longer than we should, but for one self-proclaimed "pesky atheist who wants to make you think," ignoring this one might not be an option. In the uplifting new drama God Friended Me, which will air Sundays this Fall at 8/7c on CBS and CBS All Access, Brandon Micheal Hall (The Mayor, Search Party) stars as podcast host Miles Finer, a spiritual skeptic who doesn't exactly know what to do when The Man Upstairs...
